The kind word spoken, the promise broken, And many a coveted boon Are stowed away in that land somewhere, The land of Pretty Soon. There are ancient jewels of possible fame Lying about in the dust, And many a lofty aim Covered with mold and rust. And oh, the place, while it seems so near, Is farther away than the moon. Though our purpose is fair, we ne'er get there, To the land of Pretty Soon. It is farther at noon than it is at dawn, Farther at night than at noon. Oh, let us beware of that land down there The land of Pretty Soon, ^be College Greetings Vol. XVIII Jacksonville, III., October, 1914 No. 1 Faculty Advisor — Miss Mary Anderson.

The Greet- ing this year is to be your college paper in the fullest sense, for it will be what you make it. Contributions are solicited from the students as the heading on the first page says, but above all voluntary contributions are asked for. It is impossible for the few on the staff to know of the possible hidden talent among the student body. The editor cannot depend on the English department for its short-stories because then the paper becomes an organ of that department, which must be avoided in order to make the paper truly yours. Article I., section 2, of the constitution reads: "The purpose of this publication shall be to record college events, to assist the alumnae in keeping in touch with the college, to publish the best literary effort of the student body, to serve as an effective organ for college activities, to express the atmosphere and spirit of the college, and to serve the best interests of the college in all ways." Em- phasis is put upon two phrases of the purpose in the policy of the greetings for this year. Page Three Wbt College Greeting* An alumnae editor has been appointed by an amend- ment to the constitution, and an effort is going to be made to make this department worth while and in truth keep the alumnae in touch with the college. Heretofore, the Greetings has been a paper to be proud of in the way in which it expressed the spirit of the school. Our purpose for this coming year is one measure broader, for should we not reach out for something better in build- ing on past experience? We have tried to make a begin- ning in the first issue. This number has been planned with the idea in view to help each girl find her place in college activites so that she wll catch "It" at the beginning of the year rather than at the end. Not only to express, but to help create college spirit, is the foremost thought of the new staff. This throws wide open the door of opportunity for boosting to every organization or activity of the school. Don't wait to be asked for material on a past occurrence, give us voluntary contribution on coming events and by so doing help the Greetings, your project, and the college. Whatever your literary ability may be, story telling, essay writing, rhymes, or well told jokes, develop it by writing for the Greetings. Such material must be written on regular copy paper which may be secured at the office. Write across the length of the sheet in a clear distinct hand, spacing words and lines well, and drop it into the Greet- ing's box, which always smiles its thanks to you even though you may not be able to understand its expression. Let me whisper a secret to you: Giving of your best freely, puts you in line for an office on coming staffs. * A CHAFING DISH STORY. Mabel came swiftly down the hall in answer to her dearest friends beckoning finger. "Well Rachel, what exciting and really new secret have you to tell me now? " age Four. Zf)t College (greetings; "Oh, nothing of the kind, this time; but I do wish you would hold this chair on my bed while I put up this lovely picture that I bought at the ten cent store. That perfectly new roommate of mine has gone for the fifth or sixth time to interview the dean, and left me, here on the sinking sands of these bed springs, to hang up the decora- tions." Mabel obediently held the chair in place while her tongue flew at a rapid gait. "I see you brought a chafing dish back with you this time, Rachel." "Well, it's really not mine. It's Mary's, my room- mate's, you know. Why? ' "Oh, I was just thinking. I have a stand in my room that would hold that chafing dish easily and if you could persuade Mary to bring it, we could have a party and some fudge in my room tonight. Rachel enthusiastically accepted the invitation. "Don't you worry. I'll be there with the chafing dish, and bring Mary along too. She is the only one who under- stands how to run the article. It's different from most chafing dishes. Mary said she brought it against the wishes of her whole household." At eight o'clock that evening, Rachel, bearing the chaf- ing dish, joined the crowd of girls in Mabel's room. "Mary couldn't come," she explained. "She had a date, but I can manage the lamp now, I think. It's all ready for action as soon as the stuff for fudge is put in." Rachel had just started the lamp when the arrival of another girl drew all attention to the opposite side of the room, but instead of the merry greeting the crowd had ex- pected, they were met by a cry of horror. "Girls! The chafing dish! Put it out quick!" The whole room seemed ablaze. Rivulets of fire ran along the floor, upon the table, up and down the curtains. Mabel frantically seized the water pitcher but it was empty. The others stood motionless dazed by the danger. Page Five ®fje College Greeting* jjL A vision of her school burned to the ground flashed through Rachel's mind and then, seizing a large felt cushion, she tried to beat out the fire, but the flames stub- bornly ate their way across the floor. "Oh girls, help me, help me!" pleaded Rachel. The girls seemed to recover self possession with one accord. Some rushed for the fire extinguisher, others grabbed cushions to help smother the fire. In a short time only charred curtains and woodwork, and hopelessly discolored cushions remained to tell the tale of a fire, but it was a subdued bunch of girls that left Mabel's room a few minutes later. May Blackburn, '16. \* THE FIRST MORNING. Mrr-r-r-ing!! "O, hum! I hope some one answers that telephone. I'm too sleepy to get up," thought Judith as an electric bell wakened her. Dang, dang, dang, dang! "Oh, what is the matter? All sorts of bells seem to persist in waking me up this morning. It must be late, though, for that was the vegetable man and he never comes till at least nine-thirty." Judith drowsily opened her eyes, but with a start glanced about the room. "Mary, Mary," she cried, hopping out of bed and run- ning over to her roommate. "Mary, get up. Don't you know this is the first morning of college? That must have been that weird sounding bell that somebody told me >uld come clanging down the corridors at a very early hour. Oh, my, it is six-thirty and we have only half an hour to get dressed for breakfast. Why, I never have sed in half an hour Where are my shoes? I can't find a thing. Now I have my shoes buttoned up wrong." "Well, if you would talk less and quit jumping around Page Six fcfje College Greeting* the middle of the floor, perhaps you might be able to get dressed," said her calm sophomore roommate. "Now, just look, there isn't a drop of water in this pitcher. I suppose I'll have to go get some. I was scared to go after it last night for fear I would be doing something wrong. Oh goodness, it is ten minutes till seven and my hair isn't even combed. You are all dressed, aren't you? Please get into my trunk and get out that blue dress. No, not that one, the other one. There goes that five minute bell — we have to start down now, don't we? Well, I suppose I am ready. Oh, my goodness, no, I haven't a belt on. I wonder where it is. I know I am going to be the last one in the dining room. I don't see why you can't help me instead of standing there laughing." But Mary could not resist. It was too funny. Had she acted that way her first morning at college? Genevieve Dague, '17. THE POPPING OF THE PEP-BOTTLE. For years some sort of a fluid had been corked up, put in cases and stowed away within the walls of I. W. C. This was known only to those living inside. Outsiders were practically unaware of "Its" existence. We heard much about this fluid and "Its" power for good, so much, in fact, that we became blinded to "Its" faults. It is true that "It" hovered in our atmosphere binding us together as college students and strengthening our ties to our Alma Mater. But in no less manner is it true that "It" worked in opposite directions. "It" tended to make us self-cen- tered and self-satisfied. One morning large signs greeted the girls on the way to the dining room. These cards read, "Have You Got it'?" "Got What?" "Well, Get it'" and "You've Got it', Now Keep it'." But still "It" wasn't revealed. A few days later when the girls went to chapel they noticed that they had visitors. An old man, a pump and a bucket Page Seven flfyt College Greeting* full of "It" stood on the platform. The girls caught the spirit intended and brought out case after case. The bot- tles popped and bursted, unable to withstand the pressure of the mysterious atmosphere. From these bottles, in all radiance and splendor, poured forth that which had been stowed away so long, "Ginger Pep," or College Spirit. And so now we are reaching out and grasping larger ideas and by so doing we are showing our true devotion to the Illinois Woman's College. Mary Harrison, '17. THE STUDENTS' ASSOCIATION. Are you acquainted with the girl who is always look- ing down her nose through the big end of the telescope? If she is your bosom friend, watch yourself, for what she sees through that end of the instrument is so small and far away that it doesn't seem worth while to her. Try to induce her to reverse the instrument and enlarge her vision. We have a big proposition on our hands this fall. It will take us all to handle it. Coming back from vaca- tions spent in various parts of the country, we should have our lungs so full of fresh air and our minds so filled with good things that we will not seem like the same student body that worked together last spring. What did you do with your vacation, Freshman; or you, Sophomore, and you, upper classmen? No matter where you have been, you have been storing up energy and happiness, for you couldn't possibly use all that comes to you with vacation. Please do not pattern after the too careful woman who puts away a pair of gloves to save and saves them so long that when she does bring them forth to wear at some funeral they fall to pieces in putting them on. Use your energy now, don't stack it up in a corner and expect to get it out on occasion. It's for no funeral that we want your enthusiasm and aid now. Page Eight Wbt College Greeting* The installation of self-government in the College has been a big step forward. We shouldn't think of wearing clothes of five years ago if we could possibly afford things up to date. It takes away self-respect to be shabby or dowdy. E. W. Flynn, the famous Chautauqua health lec- turer, believes in everyone wearing the best clothes he can afford. His advice to a young man is to keep his suit pressed if he has to put it under the mattress and to keep his shoes shined if he has to spit on them. Student Government isn't a fad, but an advance, a development that is a sign of progress. In nearly every college of rank the student body has asked for it, and with the strides we are making as a growing influential college, we are very desirous of seeing it here. We as a student body have worked together on other occasions and for other purposes, so we are assured that a few of us will not have to stand on the highways with a megaphone and boost for a Student Association. If you stop to think that a Student Association means practical, actual independence of action and thinking, toward strengthening of character for women, does it not seem worth while to you to make a sacrifice or two and help make history in this College? How do you like our first booklet? Are you going to regard it as a nuisance of don'ts or a really aid? It is a beginning, at least, and is tangible evidence of our success so far. Above all, let us be sane and natural, and for one thing, remember that proctors are just as full of red blood corpuscles and vacation effervescence as we are, and aren't guaranteed paper patterns by which we are to mark our courses. They are simply good souls who are anxious to put their best into all student affairs for Alma Mater. You old girls know what is expected of you. The new students consciously and unconsciously do as you do. Be glad of the chance to prove that you have 'it" by being square, and do it cheerfully. We have no time or place for the person with a crust here. Smile and lend a hand. We Page Nine Ufa College Greeting* shall soon have an organization of the whole student body of which we as individuals and a college will be proud. Feril Hess, 45. THE CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION. To squeeze into a brief article at the head of the Asso- ciation notes, anything more than a suggestion of the breadth and the wealth of the opportunity for self expres- sion offered by the Student's Christian Association is not what is attempted here. You have seen the Association girls meeting trains and dispensing information on those first bewildering days of school. You have accepted their hospitality at the welcoming party, have sung with them and felt their friendliness. E're now, no doubt, you have some inkling of the deeper significance of this large affilia- tion of students that bears proudly the name of a Christian organization. Now that you have yourselves become part jot the Association, you will want to know how best you may actively express the enthusiasm for it which is so dominant an element in all of its members. We hope to give every girl in College something to do. The policy for the Association for 1914-15 is: 1. To deepen the spiritual life of the entire Associa- tion. 2. To keep the membership closely in touch with the world's student movement; to avoid provincialism. 3. To co-poerate with the churches of Jacksonville through student Bible classes. 4. To extend Social Service work. 5. To increase systematic and intelligent giving. 6. To make the devotional meetings express the life and activity of the Association; to increase their interest, sincerity, helpfulness. Any plan or suggestion which presents itself or that you can make to the cabinet which will further that policy, we will be eager to adopt. Page Ten ~~~~~~ — — — — — — — — — — rt *nc y Wit College Greeting* ILJ|J When you have heard more of the magnitude of this world's student federation, you will glory in the bigness of it. There is something invigorating and inspiring to know that while you are working here at the Woman's College under a common purpose and toward a common end, that there are young women in forty different nations who are taking the same pledge, exalting the same purpose, and following the same Christ as you. It is impossible to be provincial and narrow and at the same time be an intelli- gent member of the Y. W. C. A. And to be an intelligent member, read the Association Monthly, attend the weekly meetings, be an enthusiastic member of a mission study class, and serve eagerly and efficiently on whatever com- mittee you may be appointed for. Girls, in your busy- ness with your other College activities, do not forget that you ov/e it to that ideal for yourself which you are striv- ing to fulfill to make your relation to this most vital of college organizations not simply that of a passive member, but of an active enthusiast who knows the charm and the urgency of her cause. Ruth Want, M6> THE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION. The Athletic Association is one of the three organizations that is open to every member of both the College and Acad- emy. It is not only open to member- ship, but it is desirous that every girl here cast in her lot for it for big things. Dr. Harker and the Faculty have made dear old I. W. C. standard in lit- erary and special lines. Are we girls going to make it standard in athletics? Are we going into athletics whole- heartedly for ourselves, for our classes, for our College? Page Eleven Zi)t College Greetings; Heretofore there has been plenty of individual interest shown in our Association, so much that almost every girl here became a member. But it was unorganized interest with no big incentive to draw it out. Each girl enlisted in some game, perhaps because she liked it but more likely because she had to. The biggest thing in athletics , the thing that draws the whole College into it, is class competition. Why is the Essay Contest the jolliest , best time of all the year? Because two classes put up their best and support that best with all the enthusiastic loyalty they possess. Multiply that two by five and watch athletics boom! Why not form class basket-ball teams, base-ball teams, hockey, and captain-ball teams; play for class champion- ship; then defend the championship from all other chal- lenges. In all probability each class will be large enough to have a team contesting in every department of athletics. For those interested in the less violent sports, archery teams could be organized. Tennis is ever present, with a silver loving-cup as a trophy for the most skillful. Besides the games for fall and spring, basket-ball and captain-ball last all winter. With classes battling for the championship in these games, the whole College behind them to push and cheer, we would have the gayest winter old I. W. C. has ever known. These sports are not the only kind of athletics there is, or the only kind that we wish to emphasize. Perhaps you know picnics, tramps, hare-and-hound chases, etc., belong to this organization. Do yob know that a big half of you girls waste your Mondays? True, you clean your rooms and go down town. That should hardly account for whole days when they are as beautiful as these fall ones are and the spring ones will be. Clean on Saturdays and have your Mon- days free, joyous days of your own. Get a jolly congen- ial bunch together; go for a tramp or a picnic; go to Nichols park for breakfast and a morning row. Or, if Page Twelve My Wbe College Greeting* 100 you wish, bring your class into that also. Take your sis- ter class on a picnic. Challenge a non-sister class to a hare-and-hound chase and end up with a picnic dinner to- gether. You will find it a great deal more fun than spend- ing the same amount of money at Peacock Inn. Mondays will then mean a big holiday to you. Girls, let's work for our classes, and endeavor to make them the best in the College in every way. For where there is the liveliest class spirit there you will find the big- gest and best college spirit. Let's go in shoulder to shoul- der to make 191 4-1 5 a really big and wonderful year in athletics. Esther Fowler, '17. THE ESSAY CONTEST. The essay contest which usually has come toward the end of the year, it is hoped will be given before Christmas vacation this year. This is one of the things that we are all interested in and a time when the most class spirit is shown. If the girls who are thinking of entering would begin to think seriously about it now, they would not be so rushed when the semester is half over. We are look- ing for some of the best essays this year v/e have ever had and we hope many will enter it so it will be bubbling over with enthusiasm, pep, and class spirit. CLASS SPIRIT. As the new student faces the realization of all her dreams and enters for the first time the college halls, she expects to enjoy all the advantages of the College and re- ceive its benefits. Of these benefits there is one which is a most vital part of college, and which she cannot fail to see all around her and without which she will be out of touch and sympathy with the girls she meets. It is Class Spirit. Just as enthusiasm gives the otherwise dry Page Thirteen yj <*!>* College (greeting* |jj and uninteresting subject or occupation a new meaning, so class spirit gives new energy and vigor to college life. When class spirit really takes hold of the student, lazi- ness and indifference have no place in her character; but with no thought of self, she is eager to fit into her notch, making the machinery move forward without friction. No longer is she a round peg in a square hole, but is anxious to put all her energies into service. She thus will get that broader vision that college life is what she makes it. "Every great and commanding movement in the an- nals of the world," says Emerson, "is the triumph of some enthusiasm." Does not class spirit have just such a rec- ord in college activities? Indifference never leads armies that conquer, never models statues that live, or breathes sublime music, or moves the soul with poetry or the world with heroic ser- vice. Enthusiasm of the hand, as Charles Bell says, wrought the statue of Memnon and hung the brazen gates of Thebes. It opened the tubes of the telescope for Gali- leo so that he saw worlds and their systems. It caused Columbus, undaunted by doubting and ridicule, to make the path from the old world to the new. Class Spirit is just as indomitable and by increasing strong feeling and loyalty trains for the larger, broader spirit, our love and devotion to our Alma Mater. Marie Miller, M6. COLLEGE SPIRIT. Some girls are especially interested in one certain or- ganization of the school, others in another. Perhaps Sally racks her brains and blisters her feet (treasurer, you know) for her class, and Molly suffers from aching mus- cles so that her learn may win that basket-ball game, while Betty worries deep wrinkles into her face in deciding what the proctor board should do to a rule-breaker; yet, uniting Page Fourteen y y ^tf^-y ®be College Greeting* [ULJ all the girls in the various branches of student activity is College Spirit. This wonderful kind of enthusiasm teaches Sally, Molly and Betty that class, society, athletics, or the Christian Association is not the chief among student organizations and activities but that it is only a part of the whole dear college which they call their own. Through this binding influence each girl learns that her efforts in one direction are more deeply concerned in .the advancement of the school than in the fraction in which she needs must center her interest. A few years ago, how lucky we thought our- selves if we happened to be in a high school which had plenty of spirit. To us the school was the "best ever" and not a flaw could we see in it. College spirit is bigger and broader than our old high school spirit. The same old pride and love are there as strong as ever, but now we try to see how we can help to improve the old order es- tablished by other students who have gone before. Col- lege spirit makes the student realize that the college exists for her and, as she gladly takes what it offers, this same spirit teaches her to express her gratitude in loyalty a,nd work. On the other hand, as each girl finds some work that she may do and does it gladly, she catches this wonder- ful enthusiasm called college spirit which makes her col- lege life mean far more to her. Find your work, girls, now in the beginning, catch the spirit and make this your college not only in name but in fact. Helen McGhee, '16. * AMENDMENTS TO THE CONSTITUTION. At the Greetings Breakfast held last May two amend- ments to the Constitution were made and which were crowded out of the June number, AMENDMENT I. The Associate Editor shall act as Alumnae Editor and keep in personal touch with all the alumnae associations of the College. Page Fifteen W$t College (greetings; AMENDMENT II. The Greetings shall have an Auditing Committee which shall consist of the Faculty Advisor, the Registrar and one College student chosen by the Faculty Advisor and the Registrar from the student body; the student chosen shall not be a member of the staff. This commit- tee shall certify to the correctness of the Business Mana- ger's report and affix their signatures to the final report given in the May number of the Greetings. LAKE GENEVA. It was almost as much fun as coming back to school when we seven, who were fortunate enough to be going to Lake Geneva, met in Chicago. Then when we found Dr. Marker waiting for us in the Northwestern station, it was indeed a glad reunion. That was only the beginning of our good times. From the time we left the train at Williams Bay and took the boat across the lake to the Y. W. C. A. camp until the t : me we took our last ride back to take the train home we felt that every minute had been "worth while." The Association camp is located on the hillside over- looking Lake Geneva, and from the tents nestled up among the trees the view out over the lake is beautiful. The day began when we met in the dining room for breakfast and sang "Holy, Holy, Holy." Our mornings e filled with class-work — good, live classes of enthus- iastic girls — conducted by fine, strong men and women. We had two lectures every day, one in the morning and the other in the evening. In the afternoons we were free to do as we pleased. n found that we did not have nearly enough time to vis ; t all of the interesting places we wished to see. We visited the Yerkes Observatory, took a boat trip around the Many beautiful summer places and spent other afternoons swimming, playing tennis, and walking. Who Sixteen Cfje College Greeting* of us will soon forget the time Dr. Harker took us sailing, our trip around the lake when it was so rough v/e could not go across and our long climb in search of the high tower, or the beautiful moonlight nights when we sat out on the pier and sang. It is hard to describe the charm of Geneva, but all who go there feel it and come away with ideals a little higher, full of enthusiasm and inspiration. Our only re- gret was that all of the girls could not have been there to share it with us. THE TUSCOLA PICNIC. "Will all that live within fifty miles of Tuscola, 111., please sign here? " So read a notice on the bulletin board last May. The result was a genuine I. W. C. picnic at Patterson Springs, five miles from Tuscola, on Wednesday, Aug. 5. The home of Letta Irwin, '14, was the headquarters from whence proceeded a carriage to the various stations from 6:30 a. m. to 12:40 p. m., when the last of the girls ar- rived. We drove out to the springs in a hack, v/here we were met by an auto-load from Oakland, making a crowd of fifteen in all (not including the drivers). The dinner was the really-truly picnic kind, which is all that need be said about it, and afterwards there was rowing on the river. After so good a beginning every one was eager to make the picnic an annual affair. Next year we hope to plan on a larger scale. We shall not limit ourselves to a fifty-mile radius, and anyone who has ever attended I. W. C. will be welcome. The date will probably remain the same, the first Wednesday in August. We shall try to invite everyone who lives reasonably near, but if anyone is overlooked we hope she will write to Tuscola and be included in the plans. Decide now to save a day for the Tuscola picnic next summer. Page Seventeen Zfyt College Greeting* The charter members of the Eastern Illinois, Illinois Woman's College Annual Picnic Society, as someone named us, were: Miss Mary Anderson, Macon; Gladys Henson, Villa Grove; Ola Wendel, Newman; Hope Hal- berstadt, Tolono; Ruth Mattocks, Anne and Lyone Schafer, Oakland; Edna and Mabel Larson, Paxton; Cecil Allen, Broadlands; Rachel Morris, Allerton; Helen Paw- son, Sidell; Corinne Hughes, Waverly; Letta and Irene Irwin, Tuscola. Letta Irwin, '14. THE TOWN GIRLS' ROOM. During the summer a room on the ground floor of the main building, formerly used for storage purposes, was transformed into a cheerful, cozy rest-room for the town girls. Such a room has long been needed, but owing to limited space has been impossible before. The town girls are indeed most grateful for this com- fortably furnished room, which has broad, sunny windows (in which ferns and geraniums will flourish later) looking out onto the middle court and campus. Different ones of the girls are bringing curtains, pillows, table covers, and pictures to complete the attractiveness of their "I. W. C. home." The resident girls and faculty will be welcome at any time. Every town girl is urged to this room. It is in a con- venient place as it is near both the cloak lobby and gym- nasium. It is to be used as a dressing room as well as a rest room. Those who are obliged to bring their lunches will doubly appreciate its use. We hope that later this place of so many uses will be designated by a more at- tractive name than just "town girls' room." Helen Dinsmore, '15. Miss Ludwig was married to Mr. James V. Martin, June 11, 1914. Their home is to be in Tokyo, Japan. Page Eighteen LJLj <R)e College Greeting* ART NOTES. We are to have an unusual privilege this year in hold- ing an exhibition of oil paintings by contemporary Ameri- can painters. This event will be one of the numbers of the Artists' Course and will be assembled from the winter exhibitions in the New York Academy of Design by the American Fed- eration of Arts. The Art classes are starting in a satisfactory manner — several students enrolling for the full Art course. EXPRESSION NOTES. The new director of the School of Expression is very happy to report an enrollment equal to that of other years and to note an increase as the first week advanced. Miss Gleckler is still happier to find such an enthusiastic and interested spirit among the girls in all lines of Expression. There has been introduced into the course this year a class in original Public Speaking, which the director hopes to make one of the strongest courses offered in the depart- ment. The class will study debate the first half of the year, from a theoretical and practical standpoint, and the second half will study oratory from both standpoints. In addition, if enough students desire it, will be offered a course in Parliamentary Usage, which will study the con- duct of all public assemblies, organizing into courts, con- ventions, and legislative bodies for actual practice. All literary society members should be interested in this class. The second half of Expression Two will be a Shake- spearean course, which will study the play chosen from both a literary and dramatic standpoint with a view to its presentation in the spring. Miss Gleckler and her assistant, Miss Shaw, will be most happy to welcome at any time interested visitors. Page Nineteen MtJ $%e College <©reetms* BELLES LETTRES. The Belles Lettres girls are back with lots of "ginger pep," hoping to help make I. W. C. the best College in the Middle West. An interesting and instructive course of study is being arranged for the year and every member is eager to do her part. The Society is glad to welcome Ruth Taylor back as a "new old" member. LAMBDA ALPHA MU. Twenty Lambda members are back in the College halls gradually becoming accustomed to the new quarters on second floor Main. Two new pictures, "The Song of the Lark" and "Sir Galahad" have been given to the hall by members of the Society. . The Society met as a whole for the first time at a pic- nic breakfast at Nichols Park September the twenty-first. Friends of Naomi Davis will be glad to hear that she has been made head of the Department of Expression in Cottey College, Nevada, Missouri. PHI NU NOTES. Phi Nu is well represented this year though we are sorry to lose Margaret Meek, our secretary, whose illness prevented her return. Erma Elliott, one of our last year's Seniors, will study for her Master's Degree at the University of Illinois this year, while Abbie Peavoy is teaching at Volga, South Dakota. Roma Swarthout has been doing concert work the past summer and will go on with it this winter. * THETA SIGMA. The third year for Theta Sigma has started with very promising prospects. Although only fourteen of our members have returned, each girl is entering into the work Page Twenty ®be College Greeting* with so much enthusiasm that we hope we will not feel the lack of numbers. Our new society room, on third floor main building, is a great source of interest, its appearance having been greatly improved by several new pieces of furniture. On Monday morning, Sept. 2 8, the members of Theta Sigma enjoyed a picnic breakfast at Nichols Park, followed by a jolly time on the water. Y. W. C. A. NOTES. On Saturday evening, Sept. 19th, all the girls gath- ered in the social hall for an informal party. What a glad handshaking there was and how plentiful the smiles. Tiny favors were given the girls on which were written a wel- come and the names of the cabinet officers. The finding and putting together of favorite songs helped the girls to get acquainted, and the singing of the songs was a real pleasure. Refreshments of punch and wafers were served. The bower was just outside the west entrance to Harker Hall and was a most delightful retreat. The program for Sunday, Sept. 20th, was led by Miss Want. The subject was 'The Christian Association in Our College." Miss Want's talk brought out very clearly the object and benefit of the Association, and besides ac- qainting the new girls with the work, drew the old girls to the work with greater loyalty. A few old girls spoke of the benefits they had derived from Y. W. C. A. The song so delightfully rendered by Miss Demuth was enjoyed by everyone. * ALUMNAE NOTES. This year the Greetings has decided to have a special department for the Alumnae. Before, it has been any- body's business, and as always, what is anybody's business is nobody's. We want all the Alumnae to feel that this Page Twenty-one SC&e College (greeting* year they have a personal friend in the Alumnae Editor, one who will be down in the front hall to receive them when they return to I. W. C. to visit, or to whom they may write letters filled with things of personal interest. The Greetings wants to fill a long felt want, that of helping the girls who have gone from I. W. C. to keep in touch with each other. Winifred Burmeister, Alumnae Editor. Announcements of weddings and rumors of others make their way to the Greetings office. On June 3rd Sarah Hughes and Ralph Otis Aikman were married in the Methodist church in Hume, Illinois. Greta Coe, '06, was one of the bridal party. Gladys Lee Maine on June 20th became the bride of Chester Arthur Shafer. The cards read "At Home," Hib- bing, Minnesota. Jessie May Campbell and Edward Wilson Davis were wedded on June 4th and will reside in Yorktown, Indiana. Esther Asplund and Frank Rucker chose July 22nd for their wedding day and Independence, Mo., as their home. Another June wedding united Tilman Stout, whose mother and sister are I. W. C. alumnae, with Daisy Coons, a former student at the Woman's College. On August 5th Lucile Jackson was wedded to Albert E. Curry. After a journey in the East they returned to Jacksonville, where they have established a country home. Miss Ruth Patterson, of Lawrence, Kansas, graduated in the I. W. C. class of 1911. Later she continued her studies at Columbia, New York City. On September 9th she was married to Fred B, Hopper and returns with him to Jacksonville to make her home in the pretty bungalow being built in Diamond Court. PftgC Twenty-two ®be College <©reetins* September 3oth is the date set for the marriage of Etta Blackburn, '94, and Mr. Charles G. Steinhart, of Wilming- ton, Illinois. 1908 — In Edwardsville, 111., on September 21, Hor- tense Corbett and Mr. Frank B. Saunders were married. Their place of residence remains in Edwardsville, Nine St. Andrews Place. An announcement has been received of the marriage of Miss Clara Baker to James Herbert Kelly, Aug. 28, 1914. They will be at home in Gunnison, California. Miss Baker taught English here last year. 1856 Miss Frances M. McGinnis, who for many years taught in the public schools of Jacksonville and later in the Illinois School for the Blind, passed from life to life eternal on September 19th in her eighty-first year. Miss McGinnis was a devout Christian and a devoted student of the Bible. 1867. Mrs. Mary Shepherd Kuhl, superintendent of the Na- tional Evangelistic Department of the W. C. T. U., has recently changed her residence from Champaign, Illinois, to Columbus, Ohio. 1908. Mrs. Vera Ross Richter has moved from St. Louis to Shelby, Ohio. She writes that her fifteen months old son absorbs most of her time. Mrs. Hazel Ross Southerland leaves Chicago this month to make her home in Denver, Colorado. 1902. Mrs. Gertrude Tanner Day writes from her home in Alexandria, La., that she is enjoying life on Evasta Planta- tion and that she has for near neighbors Mrs. Jessie Bul- lard Fremaux, '04, and her small son born in July. 1904. Announcement has been received of the birth of a sec- ond son to Mr. Homer Potter and Mrs. Bertha Ogram Pot- ter, the name James Edward. Page Twenty-three ®fje College (greeting* 1905. Alice Farrell Wadsworth, '05, with her sister, Mary Wadsworth, and Lillian Davis, former students of I. W. C, spent the summer in European travel. They were in Brussels when war was declared and, journeying to Paris, were there when France declared war; crossing the chan- nel, they were in London when Great Britain announced that the strength of that great kingdom would be given her allies to protect them from German invasion. After witnessing the panic and distress attending these moment- ous events and experiencing some anxieties, they secured passage and a safe journey home. We are all interested in what last year's Seniors are doing. Hallie Clem, who is teaching Latin and German at Virginia, 111., is succeeding very well as can be seen by the way she keeps down the unruly boys by taking off thirty in their deportment. Letta Irwin is teaching German, Algebra and English at Hume, 111. Mary Watson is staying at home at Sauk Center, Minn., taking the home course in Domestic Science this year, which she will soon put into use. Geneva Upp is using her brain to its utmost capacity at La Kota, S. D., teaching Agriculture and other kindred subjects. Abbie Peavoy, last year's successful editor of the Greetings, is trying to instill into the heads of the small South Dakotians some of the history of their own pros- perous state at Volga. Erma Elliott will represent I. W. C. this year at Illinois University, where we expect to see her carry off the honors in her post graduate work. Clara Kelly is teaching Domestic Science at Fredrick Town, Missouri. Page Twenty-four Wi)t College (©reettnga The Special Seniors are nearly all busy either putting their training into practice or going on with their work. Helen Jones is giving private lessons in St. Louis. Helen Harrison and Freda Fenton are continuing their study of music in St. Louis. Mary Shastid and Lucile dinger are both going on with their work under the direction of the Swarthouts at Millikin. Nina Slaten is now living at Springfield, 111. Elizabeth Williams and Hazel Hamilton are both stay- ing at home this year. Mildred Seamen is expecting to return to I. W. C. and take up work toward her degree. Florence Haller is teaching Domestic Science in her home town and enjoying the work as well as the good time she is having. Edith Heit is also teaching in her home school at Fort Wayne, Ind. The advent of a little son, William Lewis, brought joy the home of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Fay. The mother, for- merly Emily Jane Allen, was a member of the class of 1913. * THE SOPHOMORE CONTEST. "Have we got it? Sure we've got it! W r e had it all last year and we have it again this. We have only been waiting to show it. Our beloved upper classmen gave us the opportunity when they put us up as candidates for the Mantanzas trip. Realizing how hard it would be for any one to decide on the "prettiest , wittiest and best loved," we endeavored to put ourselves before the public eye in such a way that these particular charms, above Page Twenty-five Wift College Greeting* mentioned, would stand out clearly^ What we think of ourselves is self evident and the little inscriptions "I look good to me," "I'm a soph," "Shout for me," were merely to help those who aren't aware of our excellent qualities. We also helped the others to decide by going down to the dining room in a body, floating balloons full of pep, in the "only" colors, "red and white." We helped make our wittiness more evident by singing fitting songs, but our beauty and lovable qualities spoke for themselves. Some of us fearing our unquestioned qualifications for the offices would not be noticed, formed a triple alliance and in a strenuous campaign tried to win favor by appearing in unusual attire in the dining room and by decorating the college with flaring posters. Others brave enough to stand alone put convincing posters alongside the "trip- lets," in the elevator, front hall, and other conspicuous places. The results of the election were reported at our great "sing," each student and faculty member casting their votes. From the prettiest, wittiest, and most loved class in school were chosen: Prettiest — Barbara Weber. Wittiest — Mary Harrison. Most loved — Marie Louise Whitbeck. Hoorah for the upper classmen who appreciate us and hoorah for the class with pep. A Sophomore.
